Library Services


Online induction

Our online induction is your essential first step to using UCL's libraries, including all the resources and services available.

'Getting Started with UCL Library Services: Online Induction' introduces everything you need to know to get started with accessing and using library resources, online and in our libraries, the services available to you remotely and on site, and training and support that is available.

If using a computer, please navigate through the tutorial using the Next and Previous buttons. If you are using a phone or tablet then you can also swipe left or right.

Explore the areas that interest you, or work through the whole induction (20-25 minutes). You can leave the induction and come back where you left off.
